My source for composite ebony powder and resin piccolos has dried up, so the Whisolo Pro will no longer be
offered. I have one left. As well as the standard metal Whisolo, I am offering a black resin one that has a
mellower sound. The price for either is C$225.
Now Available: Wooden Presentation
A wooden case, with brass hinges and clasps would show
